Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
Rather than speculating I would suggest you to get an ophthalmologist's consultation, there is no relation between the throat and the eye. Yellow spots could be due to nutritional deficiency.

1. You will need an anti reflux medication. There may also be a transient throat infection causing the swelling. Ciprofloxacin is not the ideal antibiotic for a throat infection.

2. Yellow spots in your eye may be a sign of :

a) Liver disorders. Repeat your liver function tests.

b) Irritation or dryness of the eye. What is your occupation?

c) Lipid disorders

d) Rarely due to long term ciprofloxacin use.

3. E-mail a photo of your eyes to with 'Attn: Dr. Sumit Bhatti' as the subject line. Alternatively get an ophthalmologist's opinion.

4. If the entire sclera is yellow, rule out jaundice.

Hello there. I woke up this morning with very sore, very red and very swollen eyes. There was a clearish discharge built up and crusting. I put some eye drops in but it hasn t helped. They are still very swollen and itchy and sore. My throat and nose are also very sore. I took a close look at my eyes and they almost look as if they are turning a yellow/red color now. I am not sure whether or not I should go to a doctor today about it. I work admin and have to use a computer all day and the screen brightness hurts my eyes as well as the brightness outside.

I have been having symptoms that no one can diagnose for about two years. Assuming no rare disease, and no microbes or parisites, i believe 99.99 of all of my symptoms are related to my vagus nerve and digestive system as a whole!Now with that being said about on oct 14th i went out for some beers to watch a football game. I hardly ever drink though!!!!That night and next day i had all over body itching and have had it ever since!!About two days earlier my throat was hurting and i remember two days before that my teacher told me she was sick!!I have had the sore throat ever since then(about seven weeks), then out of nowhere on about NOV 8th my joints and muscles and bones have become very tender and ache, in particular my hands and wrists and knees and hips.!!!I have a high GGT liver enzyme with all other liver numbers normal, Low vitamin D in the past and now i found out that my Autonuclear test was positive when i asked to be tested for lupus!!!They did other autoimmune tests and they were normal!!!Never had any throat cultures done!!My doctor thinks that my throat hurts because of heartburn at night!!I am very concerned about the joint pain and the sore throat and NON stop itching that is NOW waking me up at night as of last night!!PLEASE HELP as the Veterans ADMIN sucks!!!!!
